I love pecan brittle. It is so expensive to buy. I found this easy recipe online. It is so addicting. It also makes a good present for the holidays.
You need the following. 1 cup halved pecans, 1 tsp butter, 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup white corn syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 tsp baking soda.
Using a microwave safe dish. Cook the pecans, sugar, and corn syrup for 4 minutes. Add the butter and the vanilla and stir. Cook for 2 more minutes. Remove and add the baking soda. Stir until light and foamy. Pour into a greased cookie sheet. Let cool for a hour. Flip over and crack in desired piece.
